Kettlebell Sunday

Kettlebell workouts get me into the right forecasting mood! It’s Thanksgiving week and i’m tracking two storm systems in the Pacific Ocean: One in the North Pacific and one in the South Pacific. The bulk of snow accumulation through this week and upcoming weekend will occur in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, and western Alberta. […]

Weekend update and Thanksgiving week forecast

I started Saturday with a workout in the Foothills of Colorado. The sunshine was glorious. I could see clouds and a wind signature to the west shrouding the high peaks and ski areas. This is a minor storm system for the ski areas of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. There are two additional storm systems over […]

Snow falling in the Tetons; next stop Colorado

I’m forecasting moderate snow accumulation across the Tetons including Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee ski areas over the next 24 hours. Snow was also falling at Schweitzer in Idaho as well. A cold front is generating this snow. It’s next stop is Colorado between Friday night and Saturday. Friday is opening day at Eldora Ski […]

Weekend snow forecast and partial lunar eclipse

One storm system is lined-up for the Intermountain West this weekend (mainly Friday-Saturday). I’m forecasting minor snow amounts at most ski areas with a couple exceptions including the Tetons. Right, this storm system is hitting the Pacific Northwest. We’ve seen this kind of minor, fast-moving, and moisture starved storm system a few times this Fall […]

Weekend storm system

A storm system currently over the Pacific Ocean will move into the West Coast/PNW then into the Intermountain West between Friday-Saturday. Right now this storm system appears minor for most ski areas with a few exceptions. A minor cold front is currently racing through Colorado. Snow amounts across the Central and Northern Mountains are light, […]

Too warm, little snow: More ski resorts delay opening

Northstar at Tahoe and Heavenly Ski Resort are both pushing back opening dates. Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw/Alpine) opened early, then closed, and will re-open November 24. In Colorado, Steamboat will delay opening until November 27. The common thread? A lack of low-elevation snow and warmer than normal temperatures. Base elevations at all three resorts run […]

Weekend snow chances

A windy, moisture-starved, and fast-moving cold front is currently racing through Utah, Montana, Wyoming, and into Colorado. I’m forecasting minor snow accumulation (or zero) for most ski areas. Notice the weekend storm system over the Pacific on the satellite image above. The jet stream ushers that low pressure into the West this weekend. Overall, it’s […]

Snow forecast this week: Two cold fronts

The heaviest snow continues to fall in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, and western Alberta. Sunshine Village is reporting a foot of new snow in the last 48 hours. The storm system currently hitting the PNW will send a cold front south into the lower 48 on Tuesday-Wednesday. It’s a fast-moving, moisture starved cold front. […]

Kettlebells and Forecasts

I started Sunday morning with a kettlebell workout. Simple and effective! Just the way I like it. For the last 12 months i’ve consistently tried to record these 3-5minute mountain weather forecast videos each day. The feedback has been positive so i’ll keep doing them. If you find them valuable please subscribe to my YouTube […]

Snow forecast next 8 days 11/12

The hot spot this weekend is the Pacific Northwest for heaviest precipitation with only light snowfall across the Intermountain West. Notice on the satellite image where the blue/green clouds are located: PNW and British Columbia. Red/orange colors represent drier areas. A large dome of high pressure will shield California from any significant snow over the […]
